There is an OpenStreetMap gem which might help

comment Grouping carpool participant addresses for network
It may be the case that "weird results" are unavoidable, and some level of human oversight is necessary. Eg if there are 6 people in a town, and the only car available fits 5 people, 1 person will be left out - no matter how smart your algorithm

comment Why can't I permanently remove this vertex?
You could try the Simplify Line tool to remove those vertices en masse?

comment How do I convert a tweet into a point in QGIS?
it seems like you could lose the product tags "r", "qgis" and "arcgis" since you just need to extract the coordinates from Twitter's API. Once you have that information, you'd add the points to any product using its standard functionality

comment one mxd per region or many mxd's per map
Another problem is that if a change is made to one layer (eg the symbology, the label font, etc) then you'll need to make that change in every MXD which uses that layer. Data-driven pages definitely sounds like the way to go

comment How to determine the optimal raster resolution when interpolating a surface from points?
@whuber is there a "geostatistics for dummies" site you could recommend? eg "it depends on the statistical nature of the observations" - what am I looking for, and how would I adjust the interpolation parameters as a result of my findings?

comment Same python code works in arcgis python window, but fails in pyScripter
PS it looks like your code should read for row in cursor since that's the name you've given to the cursor a few lines earlier

Hi Julia, welcome to GIS Stack Exchange. I've edited your code to make it more readable - you don't need to include all the comments, just the sections which are causing the problems. Can you please let us know the exact wording of the error message you're seeing?

comment I've installed OpenGeo Suite, how do I use it with Leaflet?
A suggestion is to start more slowly, and build experience in Leaflet and OpenGeo separately. Then integrate them once you are more familiar with both. At the moment, debugging will be a nightmare as there will be so many places to look

comment How to clearly display a huge shapefile with many point features?
What is your goal - eg, to have the points draw faster, or to answer a question with the data? Do you simply need to visualize this, or do you need to calculate something?

Since this answer was posted, Esri have released ArcGIS Online, which potentially removes the need for on-premises ArcGIS Server and SDE. There are free developer plans available to get started

Welcome to GIS Stack Exchange. Can you please edit this question to include further details? What are you clicking on (eg, points within a feature layer) and what will the KML placemark contain?

comment Similarity between two or more trajectories
I agree with @phloem - the key question is "how do you define similar"? All routes go from A-B, so they are 'similar' in that sense. You need to provide more information on how you'll evaluate a successful outcome

comment How to determine the optimal raster resolution when interpolating a surface from points?
@blah238 could you expand on that, and how it would have an effect? If the positional accuracy was less than the minimum distance between the points, would the positional accuracy then be irrelevant? (eg say the points are accurate tp with ~1m and the closest distance between them is ~5m)
